RECYCLE AND REUSE PROGRAM
A PLACE TO FIND AND DONATE GENTLY USED ASSISTIVE
In addition to durable medical equipment, we are available to provide consultation and training on a variety of tools that support access to learning and communication.
This program can assist you or a family member if there is no insurance, you have reached your insurance cap for this type of equipment, or if you simply wish to purchase extra equipment. We discovered that there is a plethora of usable, durable medical equipment going to waste in basements and closets of homes and facilities throughout Maine. Such equipment can often be used by others.
We’ll take it. The ALLTECH Recycle & Reuse program will accept donations of “gently used” equipment such as wheelchairs, tub seats and safety accessories, standers, portable wheelchair ramps, walkers, etc. We will then get the items back into good, working order, including cleaning and sanitizing. We are then able to make the items available to consumers at a much-reduced cost. Donors should contact ALLTECH to discuss the criteria for acceptable equipment and arrangements for transfer. Donors will also receive a letter of donation suitable for tax purposes. In our growing inventory, we may have treasures such as a stair glide system, which enables those in need of a lift to travel up the stairs. We have a sip and puff wheelchair, along with many other items that are in fine shape and useful. Standers – both prone and supine, a large variety of walkers, shower benches, commodes and a large inventory of various adjustable chairs by Rifton and Leckey.
Our inventory is growing at a rapid pace thanks to donors-both individual and professional. As our inventory grows the opportunity to assist a larger population of Maine’s citizens grows with it.
